Abstract
In the present paper, using social identity and self-categorization theories as theoretical frameworks, we explore the role that social identity plays in affecting individual well-being of Folk-dance dancers, both Male (M) and Female (F) in Niš (Serbia). The status of manifest stratification variables were estimated on the Total sample of respondents (N=71), members of the Academic Cultural Artistic Ensemble “ORO”, in Niš (M=33; F=37). For the determination of social characteristics, the Questionnaire SSMIN (reduced), after model by [34] Saksida, Petrović, and Momirović (1972) was applied. The Questionnaire includes 5 sub-scales (with 15 items), and offered possibility of choosing alternative statements. The first scale explores the situation of the Folk-dance Dancers own, and their family members formal educational level; the second is relating to the basic residential status; the third scale evaluates the professional status. In line with predictions, social identification was significantly related to, and mediated the relationship between family group factors and individual well-being. The special issues as whole points to the capacity for a social identity approach to enrich academic understanding in these areas and provide a bridge between social-psychological concept, and some demographical and educational domains. On the base of obtained manifest variables data analysis it is possible to collect very important information for further studies with similar issues in the social domain.
